Subject: Rural Women's Poverty in Economic Transformation: A Gender Mainstreaming Perspective
Author: WANG Aijun
Keyword: economic transformation, rural women
Newspapers published: Journal of China Women's University
Issue No. original: 2013(04)
The market economy transformation has promoted the development of the national economy,but rural women are poorer than before because of gender differences.The rural land contract system forces women to bear farming and housework responsibilities,which were previously shared by husband and wife under the planned economy.The family planning policy has strengthened the rural preference for sons over daughters.Government-led high-speed urban space expansion has stripped the maintenance of rural women on the land,pushing them into the labor market dominated by free market competition.All of these has weakened rural women's economic and social benefits,leading to widespread poverty among them.
